Andrew Marr gives citizen journalism and blogs a bashing.
NewStatesman recently published an article “ Citizen journalism will not replace journalism, says BBC’s Marr.” BBC’s former political commentator, Andrew Marr currently hosts The Andrew Marr Show every Sunday morning.
Andrew Marr, at the Cheltenham Literacy Festival, harshly dismissed citizen journalism and blogs. According to the Guardian, Andrew Marr termed citizen journalism as the “rant of very drunk people late at night” and mentioned that citizen journalism is not going to replace journalism. He also called bloggers “socially inadequate, pimpled, single, slightly seedy, bald, cauliflower-nosed young men.”
